21  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: question about pattern on: July 12, 2006 09:30:21 AM
thanks for advice. i figured it wouldn't matter much, but i hate to mess up and have to backtrack.

i'm using sugar and cream cotton. i've had it forever and i'm bad at saving labels so i'm not sure of the color name, but it's a bright turqoise. i'm not sure how many balls it will take, but i only have two so hopefully that's enough!
22  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / question about pattern on: July 12, 2006 09:02:29 AM
i'm making a turkish string bag, and i'm caught up on a small part of the pattern.
here's the link: http://tiajudy.com/stringbag.htm

I've made the bottom of the bag and it's time to pick up the stitches on the side.
the question relates to these directions: "Continuing from the corner where the final row finishes, pick up and knit 15 stitches along each of the other three sides of the square (total 60 stitches)."

Do I pick up one stitch, knit it, pick up another stitch, knit it, etc. Or, do i pick up all of the stitches around and then knit them around one time?

thanks in advance, i'll try to post pics when i'm done!

24  UNITED STATES / Massachusetts / Boston area crocheters, help me!? on: May 09, 2006 11:40:42 AM
Hey all. I live in Malden, but have easy access to Boston and the surrounding 'burbs.

I have been trying to learn to crochet from book after book, and website after website, and I just cannot get it. Today I got Debbie Stoller's Happy Hooker book in the mail and even though I learned to knit from her other books I am still having trouble with crochet!!

So, I was wondering if anyone knew how to crochet and would be willing to take pity on me and teach me basic crochet skills? I cannot really offer money in return (except i'll buy you coffee if we go to a coffee shop), but I can offer knitting help if you want it (I'm not that advanced though). I was going to try to get help at the Boston Knit Out and Crochet, but it is not until September.

You can send me a message or reply to this message.

If you can't help personally, do you know of any crocheting groups in Boston that get together (like the Stitch and Bitch groups?) or any yarn shops that offer basic skill teaching (not necessarily classes, but might sit with me for 10 minutes to teach me).

Anyway, if this type of post is not allowed, I'll delete it.

Thanks Mass Craftsters!

color me in...
although, i'm not at the point where i've sold things, so maybe i'm not allowed? but i'd love to be on an interest list, so i'll try and make it to Leah's book event...
I'm in Malden (just north of Boston, end of the orange line), and used to be in Somerville...
26  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / FLOR samples... on: May 04, 2006 11:30:23 AM
I was looking at the website for FLOR modular carpeting (you buy squares of the carpeting and put them down any way you want.)

Anyway, you can order samples of 3"x3" tiles (you can order up to 8 per order) for $5.00.


I thought craftsters might be interested in this because you could do neat things with these samples (like use them for dollhouses, making accesories, and such).

27  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Re: Young Ones swap, anyone? on: April 11, 2006 10:04:35 AM
this is funny, when i saw the title i thought it was about the old british television comedy The Young Ones. Pretty much the opposite of what the swap actually is...it's fairly vulgar.

i don't have time for swaps until i graduate in may, but goodluck finding folks!
28  KNITTING / Knitalongs / Re: Branching Out scarf knit-along on: April 09, 2006 03:07:34 PM
whoo hoo, i'm finally done...

This is my first lace and my first blocking (that is why the blocking is so sloppy ; )

It's hard to tell in the photo, but it is more of a reddish brown (brunette) color. It is knitpicks Elegance in Redwood on size 8 needles.

I was surprised that when I immersed it in cool water to start blocking, there was a pretty strong and not so pleasant smell. Is this normal? I'm sure it will go away when it dries, but it was not a nice surprise.

Anyway, glad it's over but I'd do it again.
29  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Get Product and Website Opinions / Re: RED SOX FANS!!!! on: April 08, 2006 05:22:59 PM
those are cool...
not sure about the rules for selling faces, but you could go to fenway before a game and talk to the guys that hang out outside selling tshirts. they have lots of face shirts and i'm pretty sure they are not all official red sox merchandise.

good luck...
